So did you know it was mine?

So did you guys figure out which Crafting With The Stars project was mine? Was another bag too obvious?

1

Ok, I have to admit, I am totally in love with this bag. It is probably my favorite bag I've ever made. I picked up ALL the supplies at Joann's on sale, so it didn't totally break my bank. The outer bag is a gray and black tweed. It doesn't show up well in the photos, but the tweed has a chevron pattern going on. LOVE. The lining is red satin. The handles are faux leather (also known as pleather). :)

So, like Tam mentioned on her blog, I'm considering writing a pattern for this baby, including a couple of different variations. One MIGHT include ruffles. The bag still needs some tweaking (I may have broken 4 needles while sewing this bag, so I need a different interfacing solution) so it wouldn't be out right away, but I think this bag is pretty fabulous and is pattern-worthy. What do you guys think?

So, with this bag, I advanced to Round 2! Guess I better go paint something!

  3. SHUT UP!!! Okay, I was seriously trying to figure out which project was yours so I could vote for you. But, I couldn't solve the mystery so I voted for the project that my heart liked the most -- THIS BAG!!

    I'm a huge Kate Spade fan (sadly, I left them all behind in the states). Please do a pattern so I can make my own knock-off Kate Spade!

  11. P.S. - What size needle did you use? I used 16s on my last bag (though I'm sure it wasn't as thick as yours) and I had bought 18s too just in case. Would an 18 do it?

  42. This bag is seriously gorgeous! You have some outstanding skills there, ladyfriend, between the creation and construction. Love the tweed and tailored details. The red thread for the buttons is genius! When it seems all the bags in the world are embarassingly blinged out, your bag stands out in so many ways. Very very nice!

  51. What a great bag, it looks fabulous! You are so creative to add those little finishing touches - the buttons, the little pocket tabs - it looks just like the bag is dressed in a fall coat!

    Speaking of great patterns, have you visited www.WeAllSew.com yet? It's a great place to find all kinds of free sewing patterns, tutorials, tips, and to see what other people are stitching up!

  54. The red thread makes it for me. Trying the potholder for sure. My husband caught my Orla on fire.

  55. Love it! (The shape also reminds me enough of a baby jumper that I bet it would work well for upcycling, with the right clothes. :) )

    ReplyDelete
  57. Just saw this on Pinterest. Is there a pattern available? I see your Etsy shop is closed for the holidays. Will it be available when you return?
